everyone’s dying to know…
“How’d I paint the tile”
and “darn, my tub is pink
or I’d do the same thing”
Well, get out your brushes & rollers –
’cause my tub was pink too
and it still is.
A shower curtain, it’s an amazing thing.
It’s like a permanent
“Before and After”
I used oil based KILZ over the old pink tiles.
I rolled it on with a sponge roller.
I let the KILZ dry for a few days, then went over it with Semi-Gloss Latex paint.
Here’s where the white tile ends and the old pink begins.
I even still have the metal attachment from the shower doors.
Can you even notice the pink tile with this gorgeous floor in your sight?
The only time the curtain is open is when my kids are taking a bath.
Other than that they are always closed.
My kids could care less what color their tub is.
I’m pretty sure the girls would be disappointed if it was anything BUT pink.
The only other time it might be open, is if a house guest is nosy.
